Do you have a script you’d love to see performed? An original idea for a new project? Have you always wanted to direct a show in English? Well, now’s your chance with ETL!

We are looking for directors to take one of the following slots in the upcoming season: September 2023, December 2023 and March 2024. All forms, formats, contents and themes are very welcome – so long as they are in English. Our call is open to theatre enthusiasts from Leipzig and beyond. 

To successful applicants ETL will provide: a modest budget for set, props & costumes, tech expenses and royalty fees, if applicable; rehearsal spaces at Neues Schauspiel Leipzig (upon availability of the house); organisational support and publicity for the shows.

Applications from the international community and especially from marginalized groups are strongly encouraged.

Fill out the application form you can find here and send it over to – first deadline is April 9th.

We look forward to hearing from you!
